May the Fourth be with you on May Seventh.
Yes, Star Wars Day will take over the Liverpool Public Library on Saturday, May 7, this year, with two events scheduled that are bound to make fans of the iconic movie franchise happy.
An all-day program will feature activities spread throughout the library from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and library patrons of all ages are encouraged to drop in wearing their favorite Star Wars costumes for arts and crafts, games, hunts and more. At 1:30 p.m. in the Carman Community Room, the LPL will screen the movie Star Wars (A New Hope), the 1977 release that was the first on the Star Wars trilogy. Please register to see the movie at libcal.com/event/8998039.
Those are two of the early-May programs that readers can check out in the new May-June Program Guide, which covers events and services available through those two months at the LPL.
